American singer, Keyshia Cole has announced that she’s retiring from music.
The Grammy-nominated singer took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce this huge and unexpected career move.
Cole shared the news while responding to tweets from fans, one of which reminded her to “stay focused” following the release of her new single and her legendary Verzuz battle with R&B princess Ashanti this year.
“I’m retiring…” Cole replied.
The announcement immediately caused a stir, as many wondered why she would chose to leave music at time when she’s generating so much buzz.
The Oakland-bred entertainer released her debut single “Never” back in 2004, and dropped her debut album The Way It Is in the following year. Since then, Cole has delivered a number of chart-topping projects and singles, including 2007’s “Let It Go,” 2008’s “I Remember” and “Heaven Sent” as well as her sophomore effort Just like You (2007), A Different Me (2008), and Point of No Return (2014). Her latest album, 11:11 Reset, arrived back in October 2017 with appearances by Young Thug, DJ Khaled, French Montana, Remy Ma, and more.
